Why this course?
This course stands out in a few key areas. Firstly, we actually show you how to ensure your data is in the right format to start using Pivot Tables. This is one of the most critical elements of Pivot Tables, but it's something that most courses leave out. Without the correct structure, you'll struggle to effectively analyse your data.
Additionally, this course uses the same sample data throughout the majority of the course. So instead of showing you a new skill on data that you're not familiar with, we build your skills on data that you've used throughout the course. This way you can focus on learning new skills without being bogged down with trying to understand the new data set.
The course does have practice activities that use different data sets to test your skills and expose you to some other data. In those videos, we spend time ensuring you understand the data set and pose specific questions for you to answer. We then walk through the practice answers together to ensure you get the most out of them.
Pivot Tables have the power to change the way you use Excel and give you skills that will set you apart from your colleagues. With Excel being a critical tool in almost every business, these skills will go a long way to boosting your career.
